The default view is to show an entire week…at a glance.…I can use the tabs across the top of the screen…to toggle back and forth between a daily view,…a weekly view, a monthly view,…a four-day view, or an agenda,…which shows a list of the dates…and times for upcoming events on my calendar.…Let's go back to the four-day view for a minute.…The four-day view is actually a customizable view.…In a school setting the four-day view isn't very practical,…a five-day view would be much more beneficial,…so I'm going to customize my calendar…
